Armed Forces Day Celebrated Across the Panhandle

It is Armed Forces Day across the country today and people all over the panhandle are celebrating this time to thank our military heroes for their service.

Over 1,000 people gathered at the Amarillo Civic Center this evening for a banquet to show their gratitude for the men and women in uniform.

Earlier today, people gathered at the Texas Panhandle War Memorial to show their support for our military heroes and check out some cool rides.  A Show and Shine Car Show was held to raise funds for the activities.

The War Memorial serves as a memorial for all veterans and funds raised will pay for the annual memorial day ceremony and other events.
